Huntsman to boycott presidential debate in Nevada

Huntsman will instead hold a campaign event Tuesday morning in New Hampshire, while his seven rivals for the GOP presidential nomination prepare to face off in the debate in Las Vegas. The Western Republican Leadership Conference and CNN are co-sponsoring the event.
